Tim McGraw Finds Common Ground Between Music and Movies
Photos have been surfacing this week of [lastfm]Tim McGraw[/lastfm] sporting a beard for his upcoming role in Love Don’t Let Me Down with Gwyneth Paltrow. They filmed in Nashville earlier this year and Tim says getting into character for a film is a lot like getting into character for a song. “I think that when you’re in a studio and you’re in a dark room like this and you’ve got the lights off and you’ve got the headphones on you’re singing this song, I mean yeah it’s your voice and you’re singing it and you’re being emotional about it and stuff… but you’re singing about a character that’s sort of walking through a scene, and so you sort of find a way to get into that and see through that guy’s eyes and walk through that scene with that guy.” As for Tim and the beard he has in the film, Tim did not like growing it out and keeping while filming his role. He told CMT it itched a lot and he couldn’t wait to shave it off.
